My father likes to read the Sydney Morning Herald on line to keep up with the latest news from Australia. One of the attractions may be that from North America you can actually read tomorrow's paper.

In November 1999 he began forwarding items from a discussion taking place in the Column 8 section. Column 8 is a collection of humourous observations sent in by readers. In this case, the discussion dealt with Australia's well-known national song, Waltzing Matilda. I reproduce the discussion as it took place.
